Dudziak on Marshall/Brown – January 22

We’re thrilled to host Mary Dudziak, Professor of Law, History, and Political Science at the Southern California Law School (and founder of the Legal History Blog), Thursday, January 22nd, 5:00 – 8:30 pm. She’ll be discussing topics addressed in two of her books,  Cold War Civil Rights:  Race and the Image of American Democracy and Exporting American Dreams: Thurgood Marshall’s African Journey.  I expect that this program will deepen our work with Constitutional Connections and Causes of Conflict through adding a global dimension.

Teachers attending will receive three clock hours and dinner.  The program is free but advanced registration is required.  Contact Matt Karlsen at your earliest convenience if you’d like to attend.

I’ll hope to have readings posted here soon.  In the meantime, enjoy the Introduction to Exporting American Dreams or her 2004 article Brown as a Cold War Case.

Update: The following readings will serve to prepare you for the session.

On understanding Brown (and, in turn, the modern Civil Rights Movement) in a Cold War context:

On Thurgood Marshall in Kenya:
